The Spirit of Christmas

Here are a couple of articles I've stumbled over the past few days about christmas related crimes.

Bad Kiwi Santas in drunken rampage

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- A gang of about 50 apparently drunken Santas invaded a New Zealand cinema complex at the weekend -- frightening customers, damaging property and swearing, the cinema's manager said Monday.

Thought by police to be university students dressed in Santa suits, the group did a lightning 20-second raid on Hoyts Cinema complex in the South Island city of Christchurch on Saturday, manager Derek Rive said.

"As they ran through the complex they wrecked everything they could, the Christmas tree -- they bowled everything over ... (they were) just absolute fools," he told The Associated Press.

He said the "hooligans" abused patrons, chanted obscenities, ripped down posters and knocked over cardboard figures advertising films.

I guess there's just nothing a Kiwi can do when Santa's go on a rampage and attack your buisness. I like to believe that if a buncha spazzcases tried this in say, Texas, Santa would have gotten a cap popped in his ass and good riddance. I'm sure nothing sobers a person up like dodging gunfire. Considering it was New Zealand, I guess we should just be thankful the Santa's weren't fellating sheep in the lobby.

Police Say Man Stabbed Over Christmas Gift"

ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. -- A Wyoming woman faces multiple charges for allegedly stabbing her husband with a kitchen knife following an argument that began when she accused him of opening a Christmas present early.

Rock Springs, Wyo., police said Shawn Johnson, 34, was stabbed in the chest by his wife Misty Johnson, 34.

She's charged with aggravated assault and battery, a felony, and misdemeanor domestic battery.

Well, that would certainly be an interesting deterrant to opening your gifts early. There's nothing like a happy christmas shiving to bring a dose of good cheer.
